Make a certain part of a GUI transparent to interactions?

2 posts in this topic

I want to make it so that a GUI would be transparent to interactions, such as that it can still display data over a window but when you're clicking or typing in that area that it will not send to that main window. I'm not really sure how to go about this, pretty much it will be an overlay for tracing objects displayed onto programs like Paint.

If the part that you want to set transparent to interaction is a control you can use the WS_EX_TRANSPARENT Extended Style when you create the control. If is not a control the you can create an empty label whit that extended style in the desired area.
